About “Four Seasons in New York – Gems of Japanese Music“
New York’s music scene reflects the diverse and vibrant culture of the city. Kimura, together with CRS (Center for Remembering and Sharing) and Mar Creation, Inc., started this concert series in the fall of 2015. As a Japanese instrumentalist, Kimura hopes to introduce the brilliance of traditional Japanese music, which is still being passed on to the new generations after many centuries. Over 30 works from the classical repertoire have so far been performed in the concert series, and from this season, the series will feature contemporary pieces as well. Come and experience the sounds of koto and shamisen and enjoy the taste of the four seasons here in New York!

mochi Rin creates bite-sized mochi desserts made with organic bean paste, seasonal fruits and flowers produced in NY. She presents a new type of mochi that doesn’t quite exist in Japan by infusing New York’s locally-produced ingredients with Japan’s popular traditional desserts —the stuffed mochi rounds, such as daifuku and sakura-mochi — and mixing in rin, the element of restrained grace.

Take Me Home Workshop & Screening
May 2, 2020 - May 3, 2020
 

 

About the Movie

The documentary Take Me Home features the inner work of people who have devoted their lives to Awakening. The Awakening journey is one of exchanging darkness for light and accepting the Love that we are. The movie shows that when we lay down our masks and go toward each other with the intention of forgiveness, healing happens. Take Me Home is a testimony to a road less traveled—the road to freedom through trust, transparency and relationships. It provides a glimpse of how to live a loving and yet uncompromising life.

 

About the Workshop

This 2-day workshop will be an intimate experience and will involve extended setup, possible experiential exercises, a screening of the documentary Take Me Home, in-depth Q&A sessions and discussions.

 

We did an exercise before the movie and for me that cracked my heart open. That allowed me to participate in the film in a really important way. ~ Carol

 

Biographies

About David Hoffmeister

David Hoffmeister is a living demonstration that peace is possible. His gentle demeanor and articulate, non-compromising expression are a gift to all. He is known for his practical application of the non-dual teachings necessary to experience Peace and Oneness. His clarity about the function of forgiveness in spiritual awakening and his radical use of mindful movie-watching in the release of judgment is truly Enlightening!

About Frances Xu

Frances has devoted her life to the practical application of the teachings of A Course in Miracles. She has followed a deep calling, leaving behind worldly temptations and living a life of divine providence guided by the Holy Spirit. This way of life is a practice of letting go of the “I know” mind, and releasing the illusion of personal will and preferences. This movie has been made through the same practice. Without experience, script, or any plan, Frances directed the film with the inner guidance that was given to her step by step.
